I think the easiest way to find out whether the hourglass could be
shown in the context of some function is to put a breakpoint on the
place where the hourglass timer is set up.  Then you will know if
Emacs arranges for the hourglass even if the operation itself is fast
enough so that no hourglass is actually shown before it finishes.

(It might be necessary to change the default handling of SIGALRM by
GDB, in order to run this under GDB.)
